A Soldier's Story

Muneer Nasser

Straight ahead traditional jazz with simple melodies and grooves.

A Soldier's Story is the musical companion of the book, Upright Bass: The Musical Life and Legacy of Jamil Nasser. A musical tribute to my father, the late great bassist Jamil Nasser. The heartfelt zeal embodied in this music reflects the not only my love and respect for my father's musical and humanitarian efforts but those of musicians selected for this recording. All star cast of musicians: Allyn Johnson-Piano; Elijah Easton-saxophone; James King-bass; John Lamkin III-drums.
